Microsoft Certified: Azure Database Administrator Associate (DP-300) FAQs: Cost, Training, Value

Is the Azure Database Administrator Associate cert worth it?

Microsoft's Azure Database Administrator Associate certification is a solid credential for database administrators and data analysts, and it's worth it if your company relies on Azure for managing data workloads. The thing that makes the Azure Database Administrator Associate worth it is that it emphasizes the whole picture of building database solutions, so earning it proves that you're ready to manage, secure, monitor and optimize databases, not just one thing.

Is the Azure Database Administrator Associate (DP-300) test hard?

Yes, DP-300 is a challenging exam and passing it requires proving your familiarity with a wide range of skills. Most people agree that what makes the Azure Database Administrator Associate exam challenging is its breadth and width. There's very little specific knowledge that you can cram or study for, instead to pass DP-300, you have to be able to prove you can recommend the right solution for a complex problem.

Who should take this DP-300 database administration course?

Although the information on this DP-300 course could be useful for anyone who administers databases, the best audience for it and the Azure Database Administrator Associate cert are DBAs who work extensively with Azure databases. The DP-300 covers managing data storage, security and performance utilization – all on Azure. Those are concepts that certainly apply to most storage systems, but this course emphasizes Azure, its unique interface and managing Azure databases.

What's the passing score for DP-300 and is it multiple choice?

Yes, the DP-300 is a multiple-choice exam. Its questions are designed to test knowledge and skills related to database administration. The Azure Database Administrator Associate cert is what Microsoft calls a technical cert, and all technical exam scores receive a score between 1 to 1,000. A passing score is 700. But questions are weighted differently, so a score of 700 doesn't necessarily mean answering 70% of the questions correctly.

How do you pass DP-300?

The trick to passing the DP-300 is to know ahead of time what's on the exam, then practice real skills related to database administration. This course is designed with the DP-300 in mind, and includes practice opportunities for all 5 sections of the exam. In roughly equal parts, the DP-300 covers implementing data platform resources, implementing a secure environment, optimizing database resources, configuring task automation, and planning for disaster recovery.
